Wellington Phoenix 20/21 to beat Western United and over 1.5 goals for Friday’s A-League matchup
Market: Wellington Phoenix win and over 1.5 goals
Odds: 20/21 @ Bet 365
Hoping to climb into the AFC Champions League spots, Wellington Phoenix will host a struggling Western United on Friday morning.
Starting with the hosts, continuing to make a string of eye-catching performances in the final third, Wellington still sit within touching distance of breaking into the top-two. In their 17 A-League matches this season, they have recorded eight wins, three draws, and six defeats, scoring 25 and conceding 22 in return. With a points tally of 27, Wellington open Friday’s contest in fifth but three points this week would see them break into the AFC Champions League spots. As for their recent run of results, winning five of their last seven A-League matchups, it should also be noted that the hosts have won each of their last four appearances on home soil.
As for the visitors, continuing on what has been a worrying run of form, Western United still find themselves in the heart of a battle in the bottom half of the A-League table. In their 17 matches this season, they have recorded six wins, three draws, and eight defeats, scoring 23 and conceding 23 in return. With a points tally of 21, they open Friday’s fixtures in seventh and four points adrift of the top half. As for their recent run of results, winning just one of their last seven A-League appearances, Western United have also failed to win any of their last three matches on the road. Given the recent gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing a comfortable home victory on Friday.
